Hypertension, what is the danger in not controlling?
Hypertension is recognized as one of the situations that rarely manifest itself by symptoms and whose sequels can take years, or even decades to be recognized.
Non-adherence to treatment for hypertension
One of the reasons for not adhering to the treatment of hypertension is the fact that patients think they do not need treatment because hypotension is rarely symptomatic.
In addition, patients may think that the medication they take will have no effect because they have no symptoms when they start it. Solution? Monitoring blood pressure at home or self-monitoring of blood pressure is one of the tools to improve adherence, possibly because it allows the immediate return of information to patients on how blood pressure is being controlled.
Altered blood pressure values measured by healthcare professionals
Patients who take blood pressure measurements at home can avoid many difficulties in monitoring blood pressure at the doctor's appointment, including poor measurement techniques and masked hypertension. Patients can also avoid reverse white coat hypertension, which happens very often when measured in the office or in front of a professional, although it is high outside the office.
In which people is blood pressure higher?
Arterial hypertension and damage to target organs of hypertensive cause are more prevalent and more severe in certain minority populations, namely in African-Americans.
